Gas explosion caused Mombasa Hospital fire: police
A gas cylinder explosion caused the night inferno at Mombasa Hospital on Tuesday, police have said.
Coast Regional Police Commander Rashid Yakub said preliminary investigations showed the fire broke out in the kitchen at around 8.30pm.
“We cannot ascertain the extent of the damage but we are lucky that no life was lost. We also can't tell the value of the property that was lost," he told journalists at the scene on Wednesday, adding they would give details later.
